How do U basically distinguish between a Java class and a Java Bean on a technical level as there are a lot of debatable points if some could please elaborate on this topic

Java Bean is always a Java Class. Only thing is that it should follow certan rules to be a Java Bean.
i.e. Java Bean is a sub-set of Java Class.

A java bean must have accessors and mutators for all variables and references.
(or so I think... someone correct me if I'm wrong)

A key attribute of a bean is that it can be visually composed in a development environment such as jBuilder or VisualAge.
Beans expose their attributes and methods to the development environment using introspection and reflection.
For more info, have a look at the Sun tutorial
